ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan said Monday he was “completely humiliated” by the publication of a video showing him having sex with his then-best friend’s wife.

Testifying in his privacy lawsuit against the Gawker website, Hogan said he didn’t authorize the tape to be made or authorize Gawker to publish it. Hogan said when he realized his friend, radio personality Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, was involved in making the tape, he began shaking uncontrollably. He added that he felt “badgered” by the Clems into having sex with Heather Clem.

Hogan is suing Gawker for $100 million.
